REIMAGINING ACTIVISM IN FILM
Activism in film can be conveyed through many forms. Some filmmakers may choose to use current events or individuals to bring unresolved issues to light, while others decide history speaks for itself. Many filmmakers choose traditional documentary form to impart issues that are close to their hearts, while others lean toward more subtle or hybrid filmic measures to spark an audience to action. Whatever the form, these filmmakers are reimagining a different world through their immense creativity in film.
